Kiyohara & Takahashi LLP has developed a niche market in Franchise Restaurant operations. Currently, the firm handles close to fifty different franchisees representing Jack in the Box, Del Taco, El Pollo Loco, Applebees Bar & Grill, Papa John’s Pizza, Famous Dave’s Barbeque, Woodgrill Buffet, Burger King, Ohana Hawaiian BBQ, Wendy’s, Denny’s and ARCO AM/PM. Our involvement with these franchisees is not limited to the traditional accounting and tax services. We also provide pre-acquisition due diligence, proforma, and breakeven analysis; franchise qualification and analysis; financing procurement and loan covenant compliance; internal control procedure and accounting software consulting; and operational comparisons with industry results. Many of the referrals are from the various franchise lending institutions who come across franchisees who are not prepared or organized with sufficient financial records. We are also asked to provide expert witness testimony and valuation analysis for various franchise restaurant related litigation.
